AOE Tank Hex Lord?

Postby Falibard » Thu Aug 28, 2008 8:11 am

So does anyone else just AOE tank Hex Lord and adds?

I did this once unintentionally... was just going to AOE tank the adds but I ended up putting out enough threat that I took Hex Lord off the other tank too. It was kinda sweet when it happened but have had trouble recreating it (seems that the human healing adds causes issues). Just kinda curious...

On our most recent kill we didnt have the warrior tanking him as we usually do, so I tanked the boss and 2 of the adds (with sheep/shackle on the other 2). It worked quite well. Neither the boss nor the adds seem to hit all that terribly hard... it's just the spirit bolts that make the fight hard on the healers.

add-wise this fight is identycal to moroes. Some mobs are harmless, some are Pain in the asses. I truly don't remember doing ZA with a tank composition where I wasn't tanking and the other tank was dpsing when not tanking :/ So I can't tell.
Typically it'd be "healer add(if there) dpstanked", "adds #1 and #2 killed", "adds #3 and(if not the healer from before)#4 CCed the whole fight".

AOE tanking those adds can be tricky because they have some annoying mechanics. If you can get around those, just make sure dps is focusing your target first, usually a healer.

The human can be stunned and interrupted and dies very fast. If he gets caught up in the AoE, just DPS him down first.
